TMZ said this morning that Kate Beckinsale’s 11-year-old marriage to director Len Wiseman may soon be buried in a shallow grave next to Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani’s marriage. Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, George Clooney and Amal Clooney better watch it, because all of the American/British marriages of Hollywood are biting a big pile of dust.
For the past few weeks, Len has been seen with a piece who isn’t his wife. 42-year-old Len and a 24-year-old named CJ Franco have been papped going to clubs in Hollywood together. Len also hasn’t been wearing his wedding ring, but that may be a thing that he and Kate do. In that picture above, Kate’s not wearing one either. Kate is currently in Prague shooting Underworld 5, because we really need another Underworld.
Those of us who have our PhDs in messy celebrity relationships know how Len and Kate started. Kate was with Michael Sheen for 8 years and they made a daughter, Lily Mo Sheen (That name!), together. Kate got cast in 2003’s Underworld and convinced the director, Len Wiseman, to cast Michael in it. The rumor is that Kate and Len boned during filming in Budapest and eventually she dumped Michael and he dumped his wife at the time. Kate says it didn’t happen like that and Len’s first wife Dana said it did. Kate and Len got married in 2004. And here we are now…
But I bet nothing is going on. I’m sure that Kate will piss on this rumor by releasing this statement: “Oh bollocks! This is rubbish! CJ’s my nanny… Wait a blimey minute. Oh, karma, you wanker, you!”
Here’s some pics from October of Len going to a club with CJ, who judging by her fug outfit, just got back from 1992 where she failed her audition as a Fly Girl on In Living Color.
